WNH Riesling night.

Quality Riesling, from Alsace and Germany specifically, are wines I love and don’t drink enough of. With age, this grape can cruise longer than any other when made in the right style (in my humble opinion). This ‘95 is out of 500ml.

Coming from some of the steepest slopes in the region (maybe the world?) where grapes are grown, this wine has just enough sweetness to pair wonderfully with the acidity. The aromatics are almost gewürztraminer like with lychee, honey soaked mango and lemon lime oil over limestone but a prevailing note of petrol pokes through. Rich and viscous on the palate, it sports more honey, orange marmalade, stone fruits, wet rock, and honeysuckle. I think this could improve a point or two with an additional 5-10yrs!
